NFL bans Las Vegas Convention

A fantasy football convention organized by Tony Romo and set to take place at the Sands Expo Center at The Venetian has been cancelled. The NFL took issue with the convention taking place at a property with a casino.

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about the possible expansion of sports gaming. New Jersey is trying to legalize it. The National Hockey League and College sports are looking more and more into holding events in Las Vegas. And daily fantasy sports websites are all the rage.

The NFL is still staunchly against Las Vegas though, and that probably won't change anytime soon. The NFL will likely fight against New Jersey as well, so I wouldn't plan on betting on football in the Garden State anytime soon.
